Habitat Mapping Training Manual

Tool Resource
February 2020

About this resource

This training manual provides a step-by-step guide to create habitat maps using WorldView and Landsat satellite imagery. This new method of using high-resolution satellite images and advanced high-speed computation allows users to quickly and accurately map coastal habitat to inform policy making and conservation practices.

This resource was developed by Matt McCarthy as part of a collaborative project that tested a new automated habitat mapping technique at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
